Remember back to 2004 when a fedora-wearing #HughJackman played Abraham Van Helsing in Universal's big-budget film about the vampire hunter? We had Dracula, Frankenstein's Monster, and even a hint of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde; but what could've expanded into a pre-empted Universal's #DarkUniverse sadly slipped off the radar to become an unfortunate standalone.
